BACKGROUND: Tuberculosis of the central nervous system continues to be a major health hazard in developing countries like India. There are various manifestations of central nervous system tuberculosis including meningitis and space occupying lesions. We present a case of tuberculoma en-plaque which is often initially confused with a meningioma on presentation. We also review the literature relevant to this unusual entity. METHODS: A search of PubMed, PubMed Central, the Cochrane Library, and MEDLINE were performed to identify all English language reports of intracranial en-plaque tuberculomas...

Primary pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma (PXA) of the spinal cord is a rare slow growing tumor. To our knowledge, only five such cases have been reported in the literature till date. We report the clinical, radiological, and histopathological features of a spinal PXA in a 23-year-old female previously operated 5 years back for a spinal tumor, presented with weakness in lower limbs, sphincter incontinence and low back pain. Magnetic resonance imaging scan with contrast reveals an intramedullary lesion in the spinal cord from D8-D10 level...

Chordomas are rare midline tumors of the central nervous system which arise from the remnants of the primitive notochord and have unique diagnostic and management challenges. Although recommended treatment for chordoma is radical resection, this may require extended skull base approaches. We report a case of low clival chordoma in a teenage patient which was successfully treated by dorsolateral suboccipital transcondylar approach.

Hemangiomas have rarely been found in the spinal cord. A few cases of spinal capillary hemangioma have been reported since 1987. The authors reported the two cases of capillary hemangioma including the tumor at conus medullaris and the another mimicked von Hippel-Lindau disease. A 15-year-old man was presented with coccydynia and left leg pain. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an intradural extramedullary enhancing mass at conus medullaris. Another case, a 31-year-old man was presented with a history of familial history of brain tumor, retinal hemangioma both eyes, multiple pancreatic cyst and syringobulbia with syringohydromyelia...

Benign meningioma undergoing a malignant transformation (to a chondrosarcoma) in intraventricular location is very rare and this is first case report to best of our knowledge. Herein, we report a rare case of malignant transformation of a benign intraventricular meningioma with relevant literature.

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a rare fibro-osseous lesion in which normal bone is replaced by abnormal fibrous tissue. Although a congenital disorder, a single case report of traumatic etiology had been described in the literature. We report a case of monostotic FD of the parietal calvarium in a 21-year-old female patient who presented to us with a single swelling in the parietal region been noticed after head injury sustained at the age of 7 years. After imaging investigations, the lesion was excised via craniotomy followed by cranioplasty in the same sitting...

Isolated neurosarcoidosis without prior systemic symptoms is extremely rare, occurring in approximately 2% of patients with neurosarcoidosis. Due to its rarity, mistakes in diagnosis and treatment occur commonly. We present a case of a 47-year-old female who was found to have an incidentally discovered solitary intracranial lesion that mimicked a high-grade neoplasm, but was later confirmed to be neurosarcoidosis. Incidental solitary neurosarcoid granulomas are difficult to diagnose due to its nonspecific clinical and imaging presentations...

Pseudo-TORCH syndrome or congenital infection-like syndrome is a group of conditions which resemble congenital infections such as those caused by toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalovirus (CMV), herpes (TORCH) group of organisms, clinico-radiologically, but serological tests are negative for the organisms. One of the variety shows features such as microcephaly, extensive intracranial calcification showing gross resemblance to congenital CMV infection, making its other name as microcephaly intracranial calcification syndrome (MICS)...

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare, idiopathic, benign histioproliferative disorder. Extranodal involvement is seen in around 25-40% of patients. Central nervous system manifestation of RDD is uncommon and suprasellar location of the lesion is a distinct rarity. Surgery is the cornerstone of management of intracranial RDD. However, tumor recurrence or regrowth is a potential problem. Hence, low dose conformal radiotherapy (RT) should be considered in patients undergoing sub-total resection or having unresectable recurrent disease...

In all 5216 case records of patients who referred to the Iranian Gamma Knife Center for treatment of brain tumors during year 2003-2011 were reviewed. Data were explored to identify patients who developed brain metastases due to cancer and assessed the information as applied to cancer patients including survival analysis...

CONTEXT: The ability to preoperatively predict the outcome in cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) helps in planning management and counseling the patient and family. AIMS: A simple prognostic scale, namely, the Madras Institute of Neurology Prognostic Scale (MINPS) for CSM has been proposed. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Six well-known prognostic factors, namely, age, duration of symptoms, neurological disability (Nurick's grade), number of levels of compression, effective canal diameter, and intrinsic cord changes, have been taken into account...

OBJECTIVES: Our purpose of this study was to assess the cerebral hemodynamic improvement with perfusion computed tomography (CT), before and after superficial temporal artery (STA) to middle cerebral artery (MCA) bypass surgery in patients with cerebrovascular steno-occlusive diseases including both moyamoya disease and nonmoyamoya steno-occlusions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-four STA-MCA bypasses were performed to 22 patients with symptomatic cerebrovascular steno-occlusive diseases, including both moyamoya disease and nonmoyamoya steno-occlusive diseases...

INTRODUCTION: Debate continues as to the optimum treatment for craniopharyngioma; radical surgical resection or partial resection followed by radiotherapy. Radical surgical resection may be complicated by intraoperative injury to surrounding structures and stormy postoperative hormonal problem. This study aims to examine the result of safe maximal surgical resection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective study of all histopathologically proven craniopharyngiomas who had undergone surgical resection over an almost 8 year period was included...

BACKGROUND: Skull base lesions are not uncommon, but their management has been challenging for surgeons. There is large no of bony tumors at the skull base which has not been studied in detail as a group. These tumors are difficult not only because of their location but also due to their variability in the involvement of important local structure. Through this retrospective analysis from a Tertiary Care Centre, we are summarizing the details of skull base bony lesions and its management nuances...
